GTD and Information Overload

People complain about “information overload.” But, in truth, the most information-rich environment is the most relaxing–nature. We are actually more relaxed and stimulated by a plethora of input and multiple horizons, and nature provides that in spades. If you really wanted to go nuts, just put yourself in a room with no input (sensory deprivation.) The pressure of “too much information” is actually created by inputs that require thinking and decision-making (email, texts, meeting notes, commitments not engaged with appropriately, etc.)

Nature is a bounty of cool things to notice, stimulating sights and sounds, but which require almost nothing of our minds.
